that's exactly it, the eras don't compare...

there certainly exists moments of transcendence in the 90s perhaps not as much so as in the early 70s...

07-16-1972 is a great show, check out 07-26-1972 if you got a chance...

72 is brilliant...July through December was a peak...

True (they don't compare).

also depends in what one is looking for in the music or even in a particular song or even in a paricular mood - damn plenty of moments of transcendence during 87-90 in my opinion (though those are not my favorite years) but damn fine one imho

Yep; there is just so much there over all the years...amazing how we can change as individuals, coming to appreciate songs or periods that at one time didn't do it for us, etc. And, I credit the electronic/digital age, at least for me, for allowing alot of this growth/shift/whatever, to even occur...and the people, such as the folks here, with providing prompts and suggestions, feedback and even a healthy discussion now and again.

42!! In all honesty.. I would believe, in a psychological sense that all of your life experiences by now would add and, accumulate, and culminate into your own mindset that everything has it's positives and negatives. You speak of the 90's as though it is only negative man.. forgoet that stupid connotation of 90's dead.....

In all fairness.. like others said.. 90's is a different sound. YOU EAR is capable of tending to any sound.. it is what you let it like.. unconsciously that is. That's why you get those pop songs stuck in your head. Basically.. if you forget all the shit that is said about 90's dead..you can respect it.. because you are listening with an open ear. If you EVEN EXPECT to compare it to 72 dead.. well man... you better go midget off to some 72 show because that is what you are accustomed to listening to. in my drunken goddamn opinion, the dead is about listening. Not comparing. LISTEN to that 90's show.. dont HEAR it OR compare it.. just listen to it. forget the rest.. just ear what you hear.. and I guarantee you will find something soothing and pacifistic and tranquil.
